Unveiling the role of choline chloride in furfural synthesis from highly concentrated feeds of xylose

Author affiliations

Abstract

Furfural is a biomass derived compound used for the synthesis of fuels and chemicals. Herein we show that choline chloride allows the conversion of highly concentrated feeds of xylose (up to 50 wt%) to furfural (up to 75%) and that it can be recycled. Such a beneficial effect was observed from the formation of a choline xyloside intermediate exhibiting higher reactivity than xylose.
